I am wondering what others use. When I get excited, confused or overwhelmed, my words get stuck. I then have a couple of favourite substitutions.

dingus.. anything that moves
sies... anything that moves and smells
eish.. any situation involving dinguses and sies.

Do you have any favourites? Mine are often used in the Park, with my friends and talking to my bank manager.

Very good Meandering Mouse! :lol: We (at the office) had one favourite word that covered everything when I was still working. Unfortunately I cannot tell you what it is on this Forum, I don't want to be banned! :redface: I'm still trying to get rid of that word, but it really says it all! :wink:

Apparently when I'm trying to explain to No2 son (aka TechnoWhiz) about problems with the computer and associated cords and plugs etc, I saw doo-dad a lot ie 'you know, the doo-dad that goes into the thingy'
I'm told I also say 'fruit loops' a lot but only when I'm on the 'not swearing wagon' and when I see or hear of something really 8) I say 'groovesmobile' (pronounced groovesmobeel) - yeah I know, makes no sense to me either! :redface:

Caracal is your new kitchen completed ??

I use the word thingamy or whatchamacallit and the real Hugh uses Shhhhhhh erbet ( he will not swear) usually when he done something like dropping the paint tin onto the carpet.

My elder son calls any gadget a magafta (spelling???).

My younger son calls me Fred and I call him Jimmy. He calls his mother Fred's wife......So does the current girlfriend....We have got to know a Gladys and a Mabel.....

Any plant (especially small, herbaceous) that is not almost immediately identifiable = "BokkenFossie" :twisted: . Unfortunately, this "bokkenfossie" trick doesn't work well with an unidentifiable bird! :doh:

There are also a few other unmentionables (well, unmentionable on this forum!... :redface: )

:hmz: Let's get bach to dinguses.

In sports where you hit a ball/shuttlecock/disc etc, I found it easier to call the thing you hit it with a bat, instead of all the confusing names given. :roll:
